A Letter From Finn

Dear Mom,

I heard you were worried that I was sleeping too much at night. You even were getting up at night to check on me. Well, I don't want to worry you so I will help you out. From now on I won't sleep at all. Okay, that isn't truly possible so I will take very short naps once or twice a day. I will sleep just until you relax your guard and start a project and then "wah!" there I will be!

At night, after many hours of rocking, you can try to put me down. I will give all the signs that I am asleep, deep breathing, spit out the pacifier, limp limbs, etc. I will even let you lay me down, but once you take one step away from the crib, "wah!". Awake I will be!

You can even try sleeping with me. I really like that because I can eat whenever I want to. But everytime you get up to take care of my sick brothers, I will be waiting for you to get back. To show you how much I really love you, I will even give up some sleep and decide that 4:00 a.m. is a good time to just be awake. Oh, I won't be mad, I will just be awake so you won't have to worry.

See, Mom, it is true what they say about the third baby. I am pretty mellow, easy going, and adaptable. I will be the compliant one for you. I will do what I can to make your life easier.

You don't really like to sleep, right?

Love, Finn

Hey, but at least you're creative without much sleep. :)

But Amy, he's just so darn cute! How can you resist his cuteness?

Mandy said...

hilarious amy! (and sad for you!) I'm so sorry! I do agree with Michelle, though- he's just so darn cute!!

Amy, I love this letter, but even more - I am totally blown away by this picture. His face is all Brandon! We've said it before but this is the most obvious resemblance I've seen. What a cutie! Oh and Finn too!

I think that Toran must have read Finn's letter, because he seems to be following his big cousin's example! What sweet boys we have! :)
